I"m new to the forum and I have some questions on paint colors for my 1940 model B. I know from reading the other posts that the orange color is Persion Orange #1. But my question is, my wheels, air cleaner, oil filter housing and generator are painted white. Was this standard? And if so, is this just a plain white or something else?

Thanks,

Mike

They were 7 inch wide with the long style lugs, and the same profile as the 40s-50s rims. 7.50-24.

I've done a little more research and I found out what I thought was white is actually cream. I'm not sure what the end use of this tractor will be, whether it will be shown or just for my own enjoyment, but how are these machines judged at shows? By how true a Restoration is done? I really like the cream color of the wheels.

Then it has been painted P.O.#2 and cream which AC introduced with the 1961 models. That makes for a pretty tractor, but if you want original, go for P.O.#1. You never know what you might draw for a judge.

There should be no white. From factory, the tractor was solid orange except rear rims and muffler which were galvanize/silver. Replacement starter, generator, headlights were black. Many restorers and repainters painted those parts black for accent.

Today's Featured Article - The Nuts and Bolts of Fasteners - Part 2 - by Curtis Von Fange. In our previous article we discussed capscrews, bolts, and nuts along with their relative hardness and thread sizes. In this segment we will finish up on our fasteners and then work with ways to keep them from loosening up in the field. Capscrews, bolts and nuts are not the only means of holding two parts together. When dealing with thinner metals like sheet tin, a long bolt and ... [Read Article]
